Childfree Celebrity Spotlight: Guy Pearce
English-born Australian actor, Guy Pearce, is best known for his role as the memory-challenged protagonist of Memento. That is not his only accomplishment, however. He is also one of the few childfree by choice celebrities who is vocal about his decision.
Quotes from Guy on the subject of having children:
"I think there are way too many people in the world anyway, so Kate and I are doing our bit and not having any,"
"To me it's a lot like someone saying, 'Do you want a broken leg?'," he said of fatherhood.
"Well, no, actually, I'm quite happy getting around without crutches, thanks very much. Seriously, I love kids but I love giving them back as well."
"We'd be on the news if we had kids," Pearce told The Times. "We'd do something horrible to them or leave them somewhere."
He added: "No, I shouldn't say that we'd do horrible things to them. I just mean that, well, I couldn't give them the constant love that they need."
Thanks to Facebook friend Milla for letting me know about Guy Pearce.
